Welcome to Year 6H!





Climates and Biomes

During Spring Term, children will develop their knowledge about the world’s 5 main climate zones, the super animals and the amazing plants that can be found there (biomes). Using their reading skills they will research and learn why these living creatures and vegetation can survive there. Pupils will also learn about how human activities can impact climate change.

In science our learning will focus on growing up and getting older. Children will learn about the stages of human development and compare the length of gestation periods in different mammals. They will be using their maths skills to record and represent data.

In English we will be building on our previous learning and so further develop the grammar, vocabulary and the structure of our writing. Over the term we will have a range of reasons to write for different audiences and purposes.

We love maths too and we will be developing our skills in

  • Fractions and percentages
  • Measures
  • Area , perimeter and volume
